Imaging features of 2019 novel coronavirus pneumonia
CONCLUSIONS: Further studies are required in order to establish the complicated association between SARS-CoV-2 infection and its effects on the cardiovascular system. Our knowledge regarding diagnostic approaches, therapeutic management and preventive measures is constantly enriched throughout an abundance of ongoing research in the respective fields.

Conclusion: The current prevention and control measures have effectively reduced the transmissibility of COVID-19; however, R 0t is still larger than the threshold 1. The results show that the government adopting the Wuhan lockdown strategy plays an important role in restricting the potential infected persons in Wuhan outflow from the epidemic area and avoiding a nationwide spread by quickly controlling the potential infection in Wuhan. Meanwhile, since Jan. 18, 2020, the people successively accessed COVID-19-related information via the Internet, which may help to effectively implement the government's prevention and contr...
We report the case of a 50-year-old man affected by SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia, who developed acute pulmonary embolism.
Days before she tested positive for COVID-19 in early April, Tanya Beckford was already worried about dying because of the conditions in the Connecticut nursing home where she has worked for 23 years. She wasn’t feeling well and says she and her co-workers, facing a shortage of masks, gloves and gowns, had started wearing plastic trash bags over their uniforms for protection as they cared for infected residents. Beckford, a certified nursing assistant (CNA) in the Alzheimer’s unit at Newington Rapid Recovery Rehab Center in Newington, Connecticut, had been running a low-grade fever but says the facility was on...
Conclusions: The outbreak of the epidemic could promote coronavirus research, meanwhile, coronavirus research contributes to overcoming the epidemic. Attention should be drawn to the latest popular research, including “Spike protein,” “Receptor binding domain,” and “Vaccine.” Therefore, more and more efforts will be put into mechanism research and vaccine research and development, which can be helpful to deal with the epidemic.
ConclusionsWe need to pay more attention to public psychological stress, especially among young people, as they are likely to experience anxiety, depression, and psychological abnormalities. Different psychological interventions could be formulated according to the psychological characteristics of different gender and age groups. The majority of respondents followed specific behaviors required by the authorities, but it will take time to observe the effects of these behaviors on the epidemic.
In December 2019, multiple cases of atypical pneumonia of unknown origin were detected in China. At the same time, a new coronavirus subtype was discovered as the etiology behind these described cases in Wuhan, Hubei (China). This novel microorganism detected, called as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-COV-2), has an enormous virulence and a high human-to-human transmission capacity [1 –2]. Thanks to its virulence, the SARS-COV-2 has been able to spread throughout the world, creating the unprecedented pandemic in which we are involved.
We agree with Dr. Klok that thromboprophylactic dose low molecular weight heparin should be recommended for all the critically ill patients with 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pneumonia . The very high cumulative incidence of thrombotic complications raises the question if therapeutic anticoagulation should be considered for severe COVID-19 pneumonia patients. As previously reported, patients with COVID-19 may show a wide range of neurologic manifestations, such as loss of consciousness, headache, seizures, ageusia, hyposmia and dysphagia.
onikaki The coronavirus disease, COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which first emerged in Wuhan, China and was made known to the World in December 2019 turned into a pandemic causing more than 126,124 deaths worldwide up to April 16th, 2020. It has 79.5% sequence identity with SARS-CoV-1 and the same strategy for host cell invasion through the ACE-2 surface protein. Since the development of novel drugs is a long-lasting process, researchers look for effective substances among drugs already approved or developed for other purposes. The 3D structure of the SARS-CoV-2 main protease was compared with th...
We report a case of 2019-nCoV pneumonia with associated acute myocardial injury2 confirmed by biomarkers as well as cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
